Lazyboy Power Recliner Parts and Repair

The best thing about power electric recliners is how simple they are to use, right? But since they have all those electric parts that make that possible, they must be very difficult to maintain. Well, guess again! Thanks to the fact that most chairs of this kind are manufactured using the exact same parts, they are actually very easy to repair. Here are the three most common issues with power electric recliners, as well as a description of the replacement parts people usually buy.

Loose plugs
Almost 80% of malfunctions happen because of loose in-line plugs. The first sign of this being the problem is the fact that your chair stopped working while in the open position. If that is the case, use a flashlight to check its underside. You will be looking for any loose connections in the wiring that goes around the base. Once you have spotted it, the only thing you will have to do is reconnect and secure it with electrical tape.

Power surges and electrical storms
These are the second most common cause of problems with power electric recliners. To determine whether this is the case, look for the green light that should be located somewhere on your chair. If it is still on, you will have to continue with your diagnostics, but if it is out, there is definitely a problem with the power supply. This means you will have to get a replacement transformer.

Severed wires
If you notice a problem while the recliner is closing, especially if one of the signs are sparks, there is probably a cut on one of the wires. Take your flashlight and check the underside of the chair to locate it. If you see one, take the loose strands and wrap them around each other to reconnect the wire. Finish by securing the spot with electrical tape.

The most commonly bought replacement parts:

    Where can we find a replacement for the electronic board inside the hand held control unit that raises and lowers the back and footrest?

    We took the cover off the control unit and the little metal plates that the toggle switch connects to are not getting power from the electronic control board. We need a new control or a new electronic board.
